Nigerians Blast Buhari For Nominating Lauretta Onochie As INEC Commissioner

Nigerians Blast Buhari For Nominating Lauretta Onochie As INEC Commissioner (Updated: 2 years ago)


A storm of reactions by Nigerians has greeted the nomination of Lauretta Onochie as a National Commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

It was reported earlier that President Muhammadu Buhari nominated Onochie, his Special Assistant on Social Media, as a National Commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), representing Delta State.

In a letter of request to the National Assembly which was read during plenary on Tuesday by Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, President Buhari also nominated Prof. Mohammed Sani representing Katsina; Prof. Kunle Ajayi (Ekiti) and Seidu Ahmed (Jigawa) to fill the quota of INEC Commissioners in their state.

The President noted  in his letter to the Nigerian Senate that the nomination was pursuant to Paragraph 14 of part 1F of the First Schedule of the 1999 Constitution.

However, displeased with Onochie’s nomination as INEC Commissioner, Nigerians took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter to kick against the appointment and as well blast President Buhari for nominating his aide as an INEC Commissioner.
